Well, you need both pixel and vector based graphics packages.  Yes they
are like comparing apples and oranges, but both are needed in your list
of graphic editing packages, along with some people needing CAD and
Visio/Dia diagramming packages.  I also would include a good photo
stitching package.  I use ICE on Windows [free from Microsoft], but I
have not looked into one for Ubuntu.

Agreed on all points.  Although I'd say a good bitmap editor would do
the stitching just fine if you choose to take time to do it.  I used
to do that with scans from a hand scanner in my Atari computing days.

I use to try to manually stitch photos together manually, but it was a
very "painful" process.  That is why I needed to find a good, and free,
package to do it for me.

Now, for stitching photos together, I tend to have 5 to 20 of them
involved in the process.  I tend to make large format panoramas or even
360 degree photos of some landscape.  I will be doing a photo project of
making a panorama of all the sides of a building as one photo.  These
types of photo stitching projects takes less than a minute or two with a
stitching package.

LOL I didn't say it was easy! Stitching packages were all but unavailable in those days.
